Delanie Walker could use a change


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) In Weeks 1-4, with Jake Locker primarily under center for the Titans, tight end Delanie Walker averaged 5.5 catches for 79.3 yards with three touchdowns. But the more backup Charlie Whitehurst saw of him, the less he liked. Whitehurst did fine with Walker in Week 4, but in Weeks 5-7, Walker averaged just 3.0 catches for 40.3 yards.

So if you own Walker in Fantasy, you can only be encouraged by the Titans' change at quarterback for Week 8 against Houston, even if it's not the one you wanted. Locker is healthy again, but rookie Zach Mettenberger will get the start.

Granted, such an inexperienced and unheralded quarterback generally isn't good for anyone on the receiving end, but that's not always true for a tight end, who often becomes a security blanket underneath. Of course, despite ranking 26th against the pass, the Texans have allowed the sixth-fewest Fantasy points per game to tight ends, so that may not be the case for Walker in this one.

It's a coin flip whether or not you start him in Week 8. Tight end isn't the deepest position, and most likely, you won't want to roster two. For what it's worth, though, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Walker outside of their top 12 for this week.


Titans TE Delanie Walker has worst outing of season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker had his worst game of the season during a 19-17 loss Week 7 at Washington. Walker was held to two catches for 17 yards -- both season lows.

Walker didn't have less than 37 receiving yards coming into Week 7. He has now gone without a touchdown in three straight games after recording three in his first four games.

The Titans are back in action Week 8 vs. Houston.


Delanie Walker fails to fully capitalize on eight targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker led the team with eight targets in the win over the Jaguars, but only hauled in three passes for 57 yards. Charlie Whitehurst overthrew Walker on one potential big play. Walker has seven catches for 104 yards and no scores the past two weeks.

He'll visit the Redskins in Week 7.


Titans' Delanie Walker ready to roll Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker was officially ruled active for Week 6 against Jacksonville. Walker was on the injury report due to a nagging shoulder injury which he's been dealing since Week 3 of the season. Walker caught all four of his targets last week for 47 yards. He has 364 receiving yards and three scores this season.

Titans list nine players on final injury report


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) The Titans listed nine players on the final injury report leading up to Week 6 against Jacksonville. offensive tackle Michael Roos (knee) and tight end Craig Stevens (quad) were officially ruled out, while running back Shonn Greene (hamstring) has been ruled doubtful for Sunday.

Deemed questionable were cornerback Coty Sensabaugh (knee), tight end Taylor Thompson (knee), cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (concussion) and quarterback Jake Locker (right thumb).

Tight end Delanie Walker (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (foot) were the only players listed probable against the Jaguars.


Delanie Walker a good bet to bounce back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) The upside to Delanie Walker's subpart outing in Week 5 against the Browns is that it was further proof that even when he isn't great this season, he can still be pretty good.

Walker finished with just 47 yards and no scores in Sunday's loss for the Titans, however he hauled in all four passes thrown his way in the game. Though 4 Fantasy points is a pretty pedestrian showing, it isn't bad if it is your worst game of the season, as it was for Walker. And the good news is, he should be able to bounce back in a big way in Week 6.

The Jaguars have struggled mightily when it comes to stopping opposing tight ends this season, allowing 13.0 Fantasy points per game and five total touchdowns in five contests. Walker is clearly a big part of the Titans offense, and has a good chance to take advantage of an easy matchup in Week 6, so keep him active. 


Titans TE Delanie Walker limited by Browns on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker required some fourth-quarter heroics to put up respectable numbers Sunday against the visiting Browns.

Walker caught a 21-yard pass on the first play from scrimmage as he got a step on a Cleveland linebacker. But he was held without a snag thereafter until the fourht quarter, when he caught three more for 26 yards. Included was an 11-yarder on the last-ditch possession that failed to get Tennessee into field goal range.

He and his Titans will try again next Sunday against Jacksonville.


Titans TE Delanie Walker receives thumbs-up for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Titans issue encouraging injury report Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The Titans are in good health with their Week 5 game against Cleveland on the horizon. Most of the players on their Friday injury report have been deemed probable, including quarterback Jake Locker (wrist) and tight end Delanie Walker (shoulder).

Also probable are defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (foot) and defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (knee). Tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) is doubtful while cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (concussion) is questionable.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Titans TE Delanie Walker expects shoulder injury to linger all season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker said Thursday he expects his lingering shoulder injury to be an issue all season, according to The Tennessean. However, he is hopeful the injury will completely heal during the team's bye in Week 9.

Report: Delanie Walker held out of practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker, who's nursing a shoulder injury, did not practice Wednesday, reports The Tennessean. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday he expected Walker to be limited this week ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns.

Delanie Walker could be limited again in practice this week


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt told reporters that tight end Delanie Walker could be limited again leading up to Week 5 against the Browns, according to the Tennessean. He was spotted wearing a sling around his left shoulder in locker room Monday.

Walker caught five of his seven targets for 84 yards a touchdown in Week 4 against Indianapolis. He is one of eight tight ends to have scored at least three times through four games.


Delanie Walker scores for third time in four games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Whether it is Jake Locker, Charlie Whitehurst or Zach Mettenberger under center for Tennessee, tight end Delanie Walker is turning into a go-to option in the passing game for the Titans.

Walker led the charge again during a losing effort Week 4 at Indianapolis, totaling a team-high 84 receiving yards and one touchdown on five catches. He was targeted seven times in the 41-17 loss and his longest catch went 31 yards.

Walker dropped a 7-yard touchdown catch with less than a minute left before halftime. However, he quickly redeemed himself as Whitehurst went back to him on the very next play, and this time Walker came away with the touchdown grab despite being covered by two defenders. It was his third touchdown in four games.

The Titans are back in action Week 5 vs. Cleveland. 


Delanie Walker still not slowing down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Neither a shoulder injury nor the presence of backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst could slow down Titans tight end Delanie Walker, who has nearly reached must-start Fantasy status.

Walker was just about the only Titans receiver who wasn't adversely impacted by Whitehurst's start. In fact, Walker seemed to be Whitehurst's favorite target in the game, as they hooked up for 84 yards on five receptions, including a 7-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Walker's stats are skewed by a massive 20-point Fantasy performance in Week 2, but he has topped double figures in three of his four games, with a solid 54-yards in his fourth. He has been targeted 33 times through four games, and is clearly a big part of his team's offense.

Walker's relative lack of track record should make you wary, though he did haul in 60 passes last season, with a 9.5 yards-per-catch average well out of line with his career norm. The Titans face the Browns in Week 5, who have allowed one big game to a tight end already this season. Though Walker is no Jimmy Graham, he should still be active in all formats for that matchup.  


Delanie Walker cleared to play Week 4


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker (shoulder) was cleared to play Week 4 at Indianapolis. Walker was listed as questionable after being limited in practice Thursday and Friday.

Backup QB can't sink Delanie Walker's outlook


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Delanie Walker is expected to play in Week 4 against the Colts despite a shoulder injury, but he makes for an interesting last-minute lineup decision for Fantasy owners anyways. Blame Charlie Whitehurst.

Walker has been one of the most productive tight ends in the league through three games, but that was with Jake Locker throwing him the ball. Now, he has to catch passes from Whitehurst, a career backup who hasn't seen the field since 2011. Whitehurst is unlikely to produce much through the passing game, which limits the upside of anyone on the Titans roster.

However, it would not be a surprise if Walker was the lone exception. He could end up being Whitehurst's security blanket this week, and both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard have him as a top-12 tight end this week. There is obviously some risk involved with Walker this week, given the injury and quarterback issue, but you probably don't want to take him out of your lineup at the last minute Sunday.  

It helps that the Colts have allowed three touchdowns to opposing tight ends through three games.


Delanie Walker expected to play


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker is expected to play Sunday at the Colts, ESPN reported. Walker was limited in practice this week because of a shoulder injury. 

Injuries cloud Delanie Walker's value for Week 4


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, a sign of improvement from a wrist injury that had kept him out the previous two days. However, his availability is still in question for Week 4 against the Colts, and his potential absence casts a shadow of doubt over each one of his receiving options.

Tight end Delanie Walker has been Locker's favorite target in the receiving game so far, but there is no way to know what kind of rapport he might have with backup Charlie Whitehurst. Whitehurst has not started an NFL game since 2011, and his tight ends haven't had much success with him under center. John Carlson had just three receptions for 12 yards in Whitehurst's two starts in 2011, while Zach Miller had just three receptions for 37 yards in Whitehurst's two 2010 starts.

Walker is dealing with an injury of his own, as he is listed on the injury report for Sunday's game as questionable with a shoulder injury. He has probably been too productive to sit at this point, but you have to have at least some doubts about Walker's ability to overcome quarterback and injury issues in Week 4.

Delanie Walker records team-high 54 receiving yards in Week 3


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Titans tight end Delanie Walker led the team with 54 receiving yards on four receptions in his team's 33-7 loss to the Bengals in Week 3.

One week after exploding against the Cowboys, Walker was held mostly in check in Cincinnati, receiving seven targets and failing to score a touchdown for the first time this season. He was targeted on one of the team's two receptions Sunday and received just one target in the second half, though he did recover a Jake Locker fumble on a botched snap. Walker has 17 catches, 233 yards and two touchdowns going into next week's matchup with the Colts.


Start Delanie Walker Week 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) As the offensive coordinator for the Chargers last season, Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt faced the Bengals twice, including the playoffs.

Both times he was able to get tight end Ladarius Green in the end zone. Whisenhunt will try and use a similar game plan for Delanie Walker, who is off to a ridiculous start this season.

Walker has 13 catches for 179 yards and two touchdowns on 18 targets and he should remain a starter in all leagues. The Bengals struggled in Week 1 against the Ravens when Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels combined for 14 catches for 117 yards, which bodes well for Walker.
